Antics of his wild neighbors through a rattler’s eyes

A rattler in the wild country invites you to live with him to observe the lives of his neighbors. Both predator and prey, the rattler is wary and knowledgeable, for his own life depends upon being a keen observer. Though never out of danger himself, the rattler views the antics of his wild neighbors among themselves and with human intruders with a savvy humor. The entertaining plots of the tales are foremost, but as an understated bonus the reader gleans a bountiful knowledge of how animals survive in the wild. [Henry Elkins]
